Thank's in advance!

Exactly same problem here. Upgraded KODI to Matrix, Boblight to 2.0.19 and it's not working.

I  the log I can see:

Bild a bug report on the GitHub of the add-on:

I've found a temporary fix for Boblight not working on Matrix in Windows 64. Since Matrix is based on Python 3, some code needs to be changed which hasn't fully been updated in the new boblight plugin.

To circumvent this conversion error for now open up default.py in AppData\Roaming\Kodi\addons\script.xbmc.boblight and change this:
Quote:else:
  # ask user if we should fetch the lib for osx, ios, android and windows
  if xbmcgui.Dialog().yesno(__scriptname__, localize(32504) + " " + localize(32509)):
    tools_downloadLibBoblight(platform,settings.other_misc_notifications)
    loaded = bob.bob_loadLibBoblight(libpath,platform) 
To this, make sure you have the indentation the same on else: as it was before and have the two lines below indented from that by two spaces:
Quote:else:
  tools_downloadLibBoblight(platform,settings.other_misc_notifications)
  loaded = bob.bob_loadLibBoblight(libpath,platform) 
It should look like this:

Then save and close this file and download the boblight dll file manually from this link:

https://dharma.kodi.tv/build-deps/addon-....0.dll.zip

Unzip this file to AppData\Roaming\Kodi\addons\script.xbmc.boblight\resources\lib and restart the plugin, it should work now. We need someone with more Python knowledge to rewrite this line so it conforms to Python 3 standards.

Finally made it to work. Problem was that I used notepad to open default.py file. After installing Thonny IDE and checking the file, I find the error quickly.
Anyway, thank you Pauldgroot!

Hello,
I'm trying to setup Boblight on Raspberry Pi4 with Raspbian and Kodi 18.7. The addon was able to connect to the server, I can see the lights doing the changes on connect and can setup static lights. But the moment I start any video it just turns on some random lights and won't change. What could be the reason for this and are there any fixes known?
Thanks in advance.

The link referring to the DLL in my previous post is dead, a new link is here for win64: http://mirrors.kodi.tv/build-deps/addon-....0.dll.zip

Hi,

I recently got a Xbox Series X and installed kodi in it, it works great (I don't use any plugins, just nfs streaming from my nas) but I wanted to maintain my old lightpack.

I though of having a rpi for the boblightd daemon and just installing the plugin on the xbox, but it doesn't work. I got an error: missing ctypes modules

Those are a couple of logs of trying to install it, uninstall, activate, etc...

https://paste.kodi.tv/wedixeledo
https://paste.kodi.tv/epitutevez

I wonder if uploading manually the libboblight.dll would be enough, from the logs seems that Kodi detects the Xbox as a Windows 10. Curiously I don't see the error that I get on those logs?

I also don't know if the plugin worked in the Xbox One systems.

Thanks!

OK I've been digging around and the xbox app as is a UWP app it doesn't allow the ctypes library which is used for the communication with the boblightd daemon.

I've found a pure python implementation of the protocol which should work, I might give it a try to addapt it as the protocol doesn't seems to be very difficult (one way, just send commands), and seems more portable that a .so or a .dll ...

I managed to do a rough implementation of it and seems to work but needs some performance work Smile

So, here is my fork of the addon, I've tested in on an ubuntu box (x86) and an Xbox Series X and a Ligthpack as a led controlled. Both seems to work but it stills needs some fine tunning, seems to me that my leds are flickering more than with the original library, if anyone could test it would be great.
